Eve Spectrum 4K/144Hz Monitor Review

Rating: 8.5.

Eve Spectrum caused quite a stir when it was first teased back in 2019. Offering a 4K resolution, 144Hz refresh rate and an initial starting price of just $589, it sounded too good to be true. For a while, it certainly seemed that may be the case – but over two years on, Eve Spectrum is finally here and we’ve been using it for the last two weeks. Is it as good as it looks, or is there more to the story? Let’s find out.

Eve Spectrum is being manufactured in three different forms – 1440p/144Hz, 1440p/240Hz and 4K/144Hz. We are reviewing the latter, though right now only the 4K/144Hz model (ES07D03) is shipping with the other models still in development, which Eve says is primarily because of the ‘IC crisis.’

Using the same IPS panel as LG’s 27GN950, the Spectrum promises 1ms G2G response times – with overdrive, at least – and comes with VESA DisplayHDR600 certification. It’s also officially G-Sync Compatible and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro certified. The price has increased from the ‘early bird’ offer though, as the 4K model will now set you back $799 and that doesn’t include a stand – Eve’s own is available separately for $99.
